We have been given some tickets to watch the latest Omni Max movie at the science centre courtesy of the lovely people at Mead Johnson + Science Centre, via a fellow blogger and media firm - 24seven. :) This movie and launch party is to mark the launch of a strategic tie up of Mead Johnson and the Science Centre to further enhance learning for young children. From now till the 30th Nov, at all NTUC Fairprice outlets, every purchase of Enfagrow A+ / Enfakid A+ / EnfaSchool A+, will be rewarded with a complimentary Free Science Centre ticket (Child). Not only that, adults accompanying children will also receive a discount voucher for entry into the Science Center. The voucher includes discounts for other attractions like the Snow City as well as the Omni Theatre. I would really like to visit Snow City too, so I guess it's a pretty good deal!
It was with much anticipation that we bundled the girls for the drive all the way to the science centre. I can't remember when the last time i visited the science centre and watched a movie at the Omnimax, i think it must have been when it was first opened, more than 10 yrs ago! Anyways, i remembered it being something pretty surreal, as the vast screen makes everything appear much nearer and bigger than it is on a conventional cinema screen. I was also interested to see the girls reactions. (although i wasn't really optimistic, as the last movie I brought G to watch - "G-force" - she only sat through about 20min (or how long the popcorn lasted) and pronounced it too tiring to continue).
So, here at the pics:
The excited duo, although K kept going "I don't want to go up there"....
This is the reason why, as we stepped into the Omnimax, the first thing we were greeted was this fun Simulator ride. I would have love to go take a look, but G although being of the requisite height (gosh she's tall!) refused outright to go onto it...
My 110cm tall 4.5yr old.
Looks so fun! the other luckier people who got to experience the ride.
After some finger food and refreshments, it was time for the show!Settling into the comfy seats
K was fascinated with the chairs that flipped up!
Initially was worried that being the scaredy cat she is, K might take quite adversely to this giant screen! It was her first time into any movie, but she really was very fascinated with the whole show, she even danced when the soundtrack got lively! :) hee....
I would definately go again to the science centre, i think it has made much progress over the years and i've been hearing pretty good reviews of the exhibits in the main building. The Omimax experience has also been really fun, the girls really enjoyed the show, except for the last 10min, where their attention span has already been maxed out. Thank god for the trusty iphone (for G), and the milk bottle (for K) as a distraction! :)
